The viaduct walls at York Street and 46th Avenue have been transformed into a public-art installation — one that's ultimately doomed, since the corridor beneath I-70 will be scraped and rebuilt by 2018. But for now, a cleanup of the area (no more dead pigeons) makes this stretch more walkable than ever before, and a fitting canvas for 23 local artists. See work by Thomas Scharfenberg, Yiannis Bellis, Sandra Fettingis, Gamma, Dread, Chris Haven, Anthony Garcia, Jesse Frazier, Surj, Paige Madden, Demi Deherrera, Ark Artiste, Patrick McGregor, Tuke, Gio, Victor Escobedo, Javon the Unique, Thomas Evans and many more.
